  1. Edison’s House is five or six blocks west of here. Finally one I know and Jaarad beats me to it.

  2. Jaarad beat me to it. It’s E. Washington in the block where St. Joseph’s is looking toward Spring. That’s a real cute neighborhood.

  3. That’s down the street from my neighborhood. I’m back on Franklin closer to the Skatepark.

    The last one was a challenge. I’m glad to see a picture from somewhere other than places we all seem to know. I should have gotten that one – my friend Michael lives right there. That is just past the railroad crossing I guess.

  4. That foto is taken from the corner of E. Washington and Webster in Butchertown. I used to live in the red brick home at 1405 E. Washington. Amazing little house from the 1880s with exposed brick walls on the interior and a cute back yard in a great neighborhood. Hopefully there won't be a new bridge downtown that would impact this special neighborhood. That would be a huge shame.
